Application Deadline: May 31, 2014
Grant: One 24-month fellowship of up to US$50,000 per year
The John J. Bonica Trainee Fellowship was established in 1998 in memory of the founder of IASP to support training in all aspects of pain research.
• There are no restrictions as to the trainee's age or degree(s).
• The trainee will generally be in an early stage of his or her career.
• Mentors and trainees must have been members of IASP for at least one year at time of applying.

Terms of the Award:
• During the fellowship the trainee will pursue either clinical research or basic science research under the guidance of a mentor at the institution of his or her choice.

• Upon completion of the fellowship, the trainee must submit a report to IASP describing the research performed and training received, including the information on activities and products generated with the help of this award. These include publications, presentations at conferences, colloquia, or symposia (or similar meetings) as well as the generation of additional extramural (external) support.

International Association for the Study of Pain Research Symposium
Application Deadline: March 31, 2014
(for a symposium to be held in 2015)
Grant: Up to US$50,000
This program, established in 1998, sponsors research symposia on topics of interest to basic scientists and clinical researchers. Each symposium will benefit IASP and its members.
Applicants must be members of IASP.
One symposium will take place every other year and will be named the “Nth IASP Research Symposium,” adding the specific title of the symposium.
Each symposium will focus in depth on one specific topic of pain research, covering several approaches and points of view. The symposium is not intended to address topics usually addressed in a more general meeting.
Each symposium will last for a maximum of three days, will include not more than 25 speakers, and will be attended by not more than 200 people.
The applicant must propose a product resulting from the symposium that benefits IASP and its members. Such a product might be a series of review articles to be published in an annual review of the journal PAIN, a book, or a webinar for IASP members.
The IASP Fellowships, Grants, and Awards Working Group will evaluate all proposals according to the following criteria:
• topics of current interest to basic and clinical pain researchers alike
• a well-balanced program of topics and speakers
• the product generated from the symposium benefits IASP
• participation of young and senior investigators with a reasonably wide geographical distribution
• detailed budget proposal
IASP will provide financial support up to a maximum of $USD50,000. Applicants must present evidence of supplementary funding by other public or private agencies and organizations and a detailed budget before IASP releases funds.
IASP sponsorship will be in the form of a grant to the organizers’ institution. IASP will pay 80 percent of the grant on approval of the symposium and 20 percent after the delivery of the symposium-generated product, following the submission of a full financial statement to IASP. IASP will not accept any liability for financial losses.
The organizers will use a portion of the IASP grant or other funds to enable speakers and participants from developing and currency-restricted countries to attend the symposium. The scope of this participation will be left to the discretion of the organizers, taking into account the topic of the meeting and the feasibility of travel to the meeting location.
After the symposium, the organizers will provide a brief report to be published in a subsequent IASP eNewsletter, in addition to refunding any income to IASP.
All applications must be submitted in English via the online application system and include all required documents, as stated in the online application guidelines.
Upload the following documents to the online application system:
• A brief curriculum vitae of each of the organizers (template available through the online system)
• A proposed budget, including sources of other funding, if needed, in addition to IASP sponsorship (template available through the online system)
• A one-page description of the aims and objectives of the symposium, including the topics to be addressed and a preliminary program
• A one-page description of the product the symposium will generate
The deadline for receipt of applications is March 31.

International Spine Intervention Society Call for Grant Proposals on High Priority Topics
ISIS is committed to funding research that will address important questions about the effectiveness of interventional spine procedures. The ISIS Research Committee is working to identify important gaps to be addressed in the interventional spine evidence base and encourage research in these areas. To this end, the committee has been working on developing study protocol outlines in areas where more research is likely to be meaningful to our field.
The first four priority areas where ISIS would like to see well-designed and executed research studies conducted are addressed in the following research protocol outlines:
• Does provocation lumbar discography cause premature disc degeneration or herniation?
• Efficacy of repeat TFESIs for radicular pain due to HNP
• Cervical medial branch radiofrequency neurotomy for whiplash induced cervical facet joint pain
• Prevalence estimate of extra-articular sacroiliac joint pain in chronic low back pain subjects using dual diagnostic lateral sensory branch blocks
Investigators interested in carrying out these studies and seeking ISIS grant funding should follow the ISIS procedures for submitting grant proposals, outlined below. Proposals are carefully vetted by the Research Committee, and funding of research proposals is approved at the semi-annual ISIS Board of Directors meetings.
Deadlines for submission are May 1st and November 1st.
The International Spine Intervention Society (ISIS) is dedicated to the advancement of the science of interventional spine care through its support of researchefforts.Thank you for donating your time towards helping us reach this goal, we look forward to receiving your Research Grant Application!
